The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry is pleased to announce the re-publication of the book All About Minnesota’s Forests and Trees: A primer.

Many Division of Forestry employees, as well as U.S. Forest Service, and University of Minnesota Extension staff, and many, many others contributed to the writing of this book.

Packed with photos and other graphics, the book is intended for educators, natural resources professionals, and other citizens who are interested in one of Minnesota’s most valuable resources.

The 58-page book is organized as a “Primer,” which means every topic and new word builds on a topic or word introduced earlier. The first two chapters introduce the basics about trees and forests; chapters three through six discuss people’s interactions with trees—past, present, and into the future. Several appendices are provided to give the reader more in-depth information.

Minnesota’s Forests and Trees is available online.  You can download a free PDF version here. Hard copies are also available by contacting the DNR Information Center at info@dnr.state.mn.us or 651-296-6267, 888-646-6367.
